I decided to stop posting political stories and links in the normal links topic, since not everyone wants to read the stuff.

So to start things off, here's a link to that Hacking Democracy documentary that aired on HBO the other day, which is apparently available on Google Video as of the moment.  This is the one which Diebold didn't want to air cause it makes them look bad.  And with good reason..!  I thought it was excellent, showing the state of electronic voting systems and giving info about the last couple of elections which I hadn't even heard.  I'm not sure if one would considered it biased at all, but even if one considered the election discussion aspects as being so, the factual info about Diebold and the machines which is the constant theme of the thing is non-partisan enough to still be interesting to anyone I'd think.  It's an hour and twenty minutes, mind you.

I voted, but since I didn't give a darn about most of the stuff brought up, I now fear for democracy.

Theres a few things that I felt I had to vote on. Even if they pass I can at least say I voted. Next i'll be waiting for jury duty. Every time I vote I get called in.

I thought I registered to vote earlier, but it turns out I didn't, and I have to register at least a month before voting, so I guess I'm out on this one.

Actually, from what I hear, the jury duty and voting connection is mostly a myth.  Most states supposedly pool jury candidates from various sources, including and especially drivers licenses.  Tennessee in particular seems to only use the drivers license database for such a thing.

I thought I registered to vote earlier, but it turns out I didn't, and I have to register at least a month before voting, so I guess I'm out on this one.

This happened to my younger brother at the 2004 election.  He ended up being short by about two weeks in getting his card.  He went over there anyway and had'em check the list just in case, though.
